The Sun’s Power

The nearest star the Earth has is the sun. Even if it is a million miles away from the Earth, its gravitational force holds it around its orbit. It transmits heat and light, which makes life on Earth possible.
Plants must have daylight to grow while creatures, including people, need food and oxygen from plants. Also, without the sun’s heat, the Earth would be all ice. There will be no breeze, sea currents, or even clouds.
Solar energy is as old as the sun. While human beings have not …

Understanding Solar Energy

Solar energy is energy coming from the sun. It is created through nuclear fusion which the sun undergoes. Fusion happens when hydrogen atoms forcefully collide and fuse, producing helium.
Nuclear fusion releases immense amounts of power in particles and waveforms. As a result, energy is continuously produced by the sun. Note that solar energy keeps the Earth warm, causes the weather, and keeps plants and animals alive.
The light, heat, and energy the sun produces are in an electromagnetic form. Moreover, we cannot see the majority of these electromagnetic waves. High-frequency waves include ultraviolet rays, gamma rays, and X…

Students and Solar Energy

There is much to learn about solar energy, and students can learn much from the benefits and disadvantages. Below are effective ways to introduce solar energy to students.
Discuss standard tools that use solar power
Stimulate the mind of your students and ask them to name standard devices that function using solar energy, such as highway lighting, garden lights, etc. Ensure that students see how these tools capture solar energy using PV cells and batteries for future use.
Also, …
